July 18th - after a week's lapse
Thursday, July 18, 2013
It's been almost a week since I last wrote - which contradicts my goal of keeping myself focused by writing about my experiences trying to RE-LOSE about 30 pounds.
Aargh! Angst! Is this part of the reason for my lack of success?
The BEST thing that has happened to me in the last month is my renewed commitment and participation in regular, planned exercise. I've been consistently going to a nearby membership-based athletic club where I follow a trainer-developed strength routine at least twice a week, and by attending a water aerobics class three times a week.
I feel stronger and more physically "fit" already. I was pleased when the water aerobics instructor saw me doing some work on a short balance beam today, and "invited" me to attend her circuit class (machines interspersed with cycling.) I will add that to my "routine" next week! I like that I have plans for MORE exercise!
Overall, I think my attitude is better; albeit, my habits of eating are pretty inconsistent!
My topic to ponder: How can I take the positive changes that I've seen in my level of exercise/activity, and apply those thoughts/actions to my food-to-mouth routines!???
